Katy Perry Joins Calvin Harris, Pharrell & Big Sean On “Feels”
Calvin Harris rolls out the latest single from Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1 tonight (June 15) and it’s another star-studded affair. “Feels,” a deft blend of dancehall, hip-hop and and electronica, features Pharrell Williams, Big Sean and, somewhat amusingly given the identity of DJ’s ex-girlfriend and recent events, Katy Perry. Coincidental shade aside (I’m giving them the benefit of the doubt), the track is a silky smooth banger about being open to a serious connection.
“Now nothing ever last forever no, one minute you’re here and the next you’re gone,” Pharrell begins the song over reggae-tinged beat. “So I respect you, wanna take it slow.” Katy then takes over for the chorus. “Don’t be afraid to catch feels,” she coos sexily. “Ride drop top and chase thrills, I know you ain’t afraid about this.” Big Sean then closes out the song with a fiery verse. Like “Heatstroke” before it, “Feels” doesn’t scream radio single. It is a glorious mood-setter, however. Listen below.
